were very much focused on iraq, but you speak to the critics, and they will say that they -- it did not achieve what they were hoping to achieve. that really to train up the afghan armed forces. it provides a stable environment to a certain extent to allow that transfer of power, that training program to operate, but i'm not exactly quite sure whether or not, don, it's achieved its ultimate goal. in the process this has cost a lot of moy, and do date more than 2,000 u.s. soldiers have died. >> we have heard a lot about those green on blue attacks with the recent uptick in violence. especially those green on blue attacks. is there a timing problem here with the troop departure? >> it's certainly not ideal. you get the impression that everyone wants to get out of here. to tell you the truth, don, when you speak to troops off the record that is what they will definitely tell you. i mean, they've had to -- this was always kind of the plan that president obama boem when he gave the green light for this surge back in 2009, he said those 33,000 troops, they will be leaving come september 2

in the iraq war. >> guest: over 200,000 have served in iraq and afghanistan. >> host: americans. >> guest: yes, americans. >> host: is that unusual? >> guest: ey, the iraq war in particular set a precedent historically, more women served and have been wounded and killed in the iraq war by iran's 2005 into the war already, than all the american wars put together since world war ii, including afghanistan. so, it was a huge difference. one in every ten troops in iraq was a woman. >> host: did they serve in different capacities than hey served in the past? >> guest: yes, bought because of the nature of the war is a guerrilla war, there isn't any front line. having an area where soldiers from the enemy side will meet up and fight. that doesn't happen anymore. battles take place in hospitals, even if you're driving a truck full of toilet paper, you can be attacked. so, because of no frontline, even if you're combat support or an engineer or a cook, you can get drawn into battle, and many, many women also were being used as gunners and working alongside with the infantry, doing exactly the same job a

to end the war in iraq. and he won't tell us how he'll end the war in afghanistan. well, i have and i will. and while my opponent would spend more money some military hardware that our joint chiefs don't even want, i will use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges and schools and runways, because after two wars, that have cost us thousands of lives and over a trillion dollars, it's time to do some nation building right here at home. you can choose a future where we reduce our deficit without sticking it to the middle class. independent experts say that my plan would cut our deficit by $4 trillion. and last summer i worked with republicans in congress to cut a billion in spending because those of us who believe government could be a force for good should work harder than anyone to reform it so it's leaner and more efficient and more responsive to the american people. i want to reform the tax code so that simple, fair and ask the wealthiest households to pay tax on incomes over $250,000. the same rate
of leadership in the region. today senator john mccain called the white house disengaged. >> we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we're leaving the area. the people in the area are having to adjust. and they believe the united states is weak. and they are taking appropriate action. >> reporter: as the administration tries to contain the damage, the white house has asked google, the youtube parent company to review the anti-muslim film that sparked those initial protests in egypt and libya. google temporarily blocked the video in those two countries but says the film does not violate its terms of use and it will remain on-line, jeff. >> jeff: anna werner, thank you. >> the libyan president east also told bob schieffer today that his government has arrested roughly 50 people for the again bazzee-- benghazi attack and at least some of them are from other countries. our charlie d'agata is in benghazi tonight. charlie, what more are you hearing about who is responsible? >> well, a top libyan official told us today, jeff, that members within the militant groupance ar-al shariya are suspects
the approach in iraq was very different for troops than the approach in afghanistan where you deal with the local elders. how do we convince them we don't share those sentments? that we don't categorize the muslim people in that way? >> well, jamie, i think we can say it and our government has been saying it. we can disavow these things but we also have to be true to our values. we believe in freedom of speech. we believe in freedom of religion. jamie i would caution against making this too much about oust. even though the spark for this may have been this video the actual grievances are much deeper and i think that in fact it is not just about us. look, the other parties have been targeted here too. religious minorities. the former regimes, liberal activists have been targeted over past many months in these places. it is a mistake to make this about us and these countries. it is not all about the united states here. jamie: can you or can you not change the minds of people involved in these protests in huge numbers? >> i think you can over time, frankly. the problem here again you
said i would end the war in iraq. i did. i said we would go after al qaeda. they've been decimated. that we would go after bin laden. he's gone. so i've executed on my foreign policy and it's one that the american people largely agree with. so if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> for his part romney described how he would decide whether to send u.s. forces into combat. >> number one, a very substantial american interest at stake. number two a clear definition of our mission. number three, a clear definition of how we'll know when our mission is complete. number four, providing the resources to make sure that we can carry out that mission effectively, overwhelming resources and finally a clear understanding of what will be left after we leave. >> you can watch all of the "60 minutes" interviews with president obama and mitt romney online at >>> here in new york the 67th annual session of the united nations general assembly opens today. 116 heads of state will attend. president obama hosts a reception tonight and address
not make countries like iraq and afghanistan substantially save for themselves. i think we have seen a change in strategy with a much more targeted approach toward eradicating the al qaeda network. and now we are really refocusing on how to return to american power, with our economy and other things. the time for crusades and the like are long past. >> there was a protest in yemen just yesterday. but we had a -- we had in al qaeda untifigure killed there. sentiment can easily turn against america, what of the strategy, whether it is put on the ground or drones in the air. >> there is concern that the use of smart power is quite an developed in the u.s. we can go in with our military is, whether targeted strikes or large numbers of boots on the ground, and have some sort of impact. but what we are still not very good at is the diplomacy, and the cultural diplomacy and economic diplomacy as well we did that during the cold war time frame, but we have not done that well in the muslim world. >> the family of the young christian girl accused of blasphemy in pakistan have said that neighbo
. you know, he said ending the war in iraq was tragic. i said we would end that war and we did. i said we would take out bin laden and we did. today all of our troops are out of iraq. we are bringing them home from afghanistan. and as long as i'm commander in chief we will serve our veterans as well as they've served us. veterans like lucas who got his education thanks to the post 9/11 g.i. bill because nobody who fights for this country should have to fight for a job or an education or a roof over their heads when they come home. that's what's at stake in this election. on issue after issue, iowa, governor romney and congressman ryan will take us back wards. but the story of america is about moving forward. and soon you will get a chance to choose a path that will actually lead to a better future. but over the next two months, the other side will spend more money than we have ever seen on ads that basically tell you the same thing they told you at the convention. the economy is not doing good and it's obama's fault. they know their economic plan isn't popular. go figure that raising t

delivered i saw the president make the tough calls in the situation room. and today, our troops in iraq have finally come home. so america can do some nation building, here at home. that was a change we believed in, that was a change we fought for. that was a change president obama delivered. i remember when the president received a report that the auto industry had a few weeks before its collapse. we met in the roosevelt room, late into the night. some of the president's advisers said that in order to save general motors, you had to let chrysler go under. others said, it's like throwing good money after bad. among all the experts, there were only guesses and nobody put it at better than a 1 in 4 shot. only the president suggested going all in to save the industry and the jobs. rising above all the voices in washington, president obama listened to the voices that mattered to him most, the voices of the auto workers in the communities that depended on them, just like the voices of the steel workers and the communities on the south side of chicago, where he worked earlier in his career. presid
is well, and thriving in some places, including iraq, including in syria where there's more and more those kinds of people coming in, including other parts of the middle east. and it's just disgraceful that we would say that an attack such as this was the result of a demonstration. >> disgraceful is a strong word to be used. you've never shied away from that. how can you say you know? >> how can you say when there's an attack with mortars, with heavy weapons, indirect and direct -- anybody who understands warfare, anybody who has the fundamental understanding of warfare knows that that's not a spontaneous demonstration. that's now, norah. >> as you know libya -- what susan rice said on a number of shows over the weekend which you have criticized -- i read this morning. >> i was on after her. she said they had no evidence that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. how could you say that when mortars indirect, direct fire and heavy weapons are being used at this is as a result of a spontaneous demonstration? also incredible to blame it on a video. it's not the video. its the islamist using
